All I Want

I don't really ask for much
Just for air, my health and such,
And if I needed to ever make a stand
I never ask for another person's hand.
I am not at all selfish or ever greedy
So, I help the poor and also the needy,
And I always give up my place in line
So, a child would not have to whine.
I never wish upon a lonely star
Because dreams are always to far,
And I was taught never ever to put myself first
As I don't like being hated, or cursed.
And when unto God that I pray
It's never for me in the prayer that I say,
I only truly ask for peace and love
When I speak only to God, who sits above.
For a woman I will always open the door
For the elderly, I will help them do their chore,
And if I ever take anyone out to eat
It is always my pleasure, and also my treat.
Now, I have a want and a need and a desire
Which burns my heart like an open fire,
My yearning and craving is wanting to ignite
So, please God, let her come over tonight.
